Pippa, who welcomed her first child — a baby boy — in October, wore a belted floral blue dress for the happy occasion, which she paired with a chic blue headband. Her husband also got the color memo, adding a matching blue vest to his wedding day ensemble.

Pippa — the younger sister of Kate Middleton — is a longtime friend of the groom, Thomas Kingston. Kingston, who works in frontier market investment, popped the question to Lady Gabriella, who is a senior Director at at Branding Latin America, on Sark, one of the Channel Islands just off the coast of France.

The bride’s parents, Prince Michael and Princess Michael, were “delighted” with the news, the palace said in a statement.

Also among the wedding party were Pippa’s parents Carole and Michael Middleton, as well as her brother James Middleton. Their royal sister Kate Middleton was not at the wedding, nor was Prince William, who is preparing to attend the soccer FA Cup final. However, Prince Harry did make a surprise appearance after welcoming son Archie Harrison with wife Meghan Markle on May 6.

In April, Pippa opened up about being a first-time mom to baby Arthur.

“Starting my son Arthur swimming at four months old has given him confidence and enjoyment in water,” she wrote in

Pippa, 35, previously said swimming had become a go-to way to keep up her fitness routine as she neared her due date.

“From personal experience, I’d confidently say I find it has been the most enjoyable and rewarding form of exercise since I found out I was expecting,” she shared. “It’s comforting to know that it’s safe throughout pregnancy, and you don’t need to adapt and change too much (unlike most other sports). It’s so good for you that you could swim every day – as long as you don’t overexert yourself – right up until the end of the third trimester.”

Pippa and James have been spotted around London and on vacation in St. Barts since becoming parents, but she made her first official post-baby outing at a charity gala event in late February.

A source previously told PEOPLE that Pippa and James are looking forward to settling down and “having children and leading a quiet life.”
